The House of the Rising Sun written and performed by Nick Strauss (c) 2020
I decided to rewrite this song.
I. There is a house in New Orleans A house of the rising sun Its been the bane of many a young boy, And Lord I know I'm one. II. The house was a grand place to grow And grow the young boy did Till he was as tall as the trees beside The house of the rising sun. III. A gale came from out of the east And flooded the town one day It spared the life of one little boy In the house of the rising sun. IV. The boy did pack a sack and a hat And left the house that same day He followed the sun west down the road And left his home, "Goodbye" V. Years later, a old man returned To the house of the rising sun It was the same place he knew as a boy A house of the rising sun.
